Seriously addictive new record here from US thrash gods Death Angel, an album I can't stop spinning, despite great new metal records from acts such as Crystal Viper, Eden's Curse, and Almah. There's not a bad tune on this bad boy, with 'Castor Of Shame', 'Empty', and the title track being the strongest cuts. With a surprising dose of melody, 'The Dream Calls For Blood' just flies with the grace of an eagle, slicing you with its talons. Great production, awesome riff work, killer vocal lines, and bitching melodies, metal fans can't go wrong with this release. Do yourself a favour; own it.

A lot of thrash bands have been coming back to the fold since the turn of the 21st century, and I for one am very happy that Death Angel is among them. Along with the likes of other Bay Area staples Exodus and Testament, a very convincing argument can be made that they are releasing albums that are as good, if not better than the albums we all remember from the late 80's and early 90's heyday. The Dream Calls For Blood hits your speakers with all the swagger, attitude and meaty metal goodness that all enduring thrash albums possess.
The Dream Calls For Blood is the most aggressive album Death Angel have made in a run of four great records that began with The Art Of Dying. Yet it also contains a great mixture of light and shade in the songs. I never find myself feeling that their bludgeon is getting monotonous, or that the lighter moments are overstaying their welcome. Their song writing has also matured to a point where all of the songs are allowed to breath and not feel cluttered, even when your eardrums are being assaulted by a crunchy 100km/h riff. Speaking of riffs, The Dream Calls For Blood is chock full of great, neck snapping riffs that flow really well. Your ability to hear all of these, as well as the tighter than tight drums and bass is due to a fantastic production job that is nice and clear. Sonically this is a great sounding album. Vocally Mark Osegueda has come to terms with the loss of his higher end and actually helps up the aggression with his delivery. It's nice to hear a thrash vocalist who hasn't joined the death growl bandwagon, and who doesn't pay homage to James Hetfield by copying his delivery.
As much as I enjoy The Dream Calls For Blood, it's not going to be mentioned in the same breath as Master Of Puppets or Reign In Blood.

I'm not a great person at analysing tracks in detail, main reason i can't be bothered, so i'll lay it down from the perspective of an old school thrasher who grew up with bands like this.

Simply, this album is amazing, from song structure, performance and production. It's one of those times when a band just gets everything right.

It's a powerful album, hammering out one classic after another and personally I've not heard them sound this good since their first two albums. RIffs are amazing, mixed with speed and amazing melodic sections as only Death Angel can do, but this is a hard hitting album. Not many albums will beat this for the quality of the song writing throughout each track. Love it.

Just listen to the opening track - Left For Dead, if you like that, which in my opinion is one of the best tracks on it, you'll love the rest. Very nice balance throughout the album. In my opinion they seem to have avoided filler songs, those crappy ones some bands do because they either don't have the time, creativity or patience to write something better. The album does not have a bad track on it.

It's laughable when we hear the rubbish being spewed out by the prima donna bands like Metallica and Megadeth these days, that bands like Death Angel will never reach these dizzy heights of fame, because they came out during a time when there was 1000's of stand out bands.

Buy this... well worth every penny.

It has been three years since we last saw the Bay Area thrash band last release Relentless Retribution and now with the two newest members fully initiated into the line-up, this is their fourth album since their 2001 reunion and their fourth on Nuclear Blast. Their sound hasn't really changed from their previous album and with the wolves now in the wilderness baying for blood, unlike last album's cover artwork with the lone wolf on the pile of bodies, I feel the artwork best represents Death Angel now.

The general state of all thrash metal bands presently, with so many alike to Death Angel that to me thrash metal is well and truly kicking. Even though it is 'just another label' that we stick to bands, I think that Dream Calls For Blood truly sums up thrash metal in one album. There have been many great and `classic' albums, and in today's stale music scene I'm looking for that one band to energize me every time I listen to their album. Enter Death Angel. Even the added quick review by Kirk Hammet on the sticker is like: "If Kirk likes it, then so do I!"

When I say that the "sound hasn't changed' I also mean the production as well. In fact, truth be told, I don't think there's much difference between the last album and this one if anything has changed at all; the only change I can think of is that the album is more streamlined, more concise and with a ton of energy going into it. What's good about a Death Angel album is you know what you're getting - there's no hesitation about the last album, if you're hesitating at all. With a few songs streamed through the official Death Angel website and if you've managed to have a sneaky listen, then I'm sure the songs you heard will have surprised you.
